Do you feel Carpet can be Installed and Fixed in Local (Short distance) and Express trains (Long Distance) ?.

Do you feel Carpet can be Installed and Fixed in Local transport and Luxury Buses ?.

Can this give a Better Designing and Comfortable look and feel for the passengers travelling in Trains and Buses ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

ANSWER: Sorry, I have no  opinion about this. It seems a market/product development issue for the transportation industry to look at.

Best wishes.

QUESTION: Dear Prof Cleggsan

Thank you.

In both the automobiles i.e. Trains and Buses, the Carpet installation has to be done before the Seating Chairs are installed and fixed with the machine/s ?.

i.e. Carpet Installation first and then Fix the Seating Chairs since it looks like the seating chairs are permanently fixed in the trains and buses.

So it might be difficult to fix Carpets once the seating chairs are fixed
in Trains and Buses. Is it ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
This is not a technical area that I have any knowledge.

However, I have been a passenger on trains and subways in England and Japan and China where certain  sections of seating do have a quasi carpet installed. It seems to be a section where the feet would be able to take advantage.  Whether install prior to seating or after I don't know but it could be a small selected area that is cemented or riveted in place for the comfort of the passenger.

Maybe that will give you some further thoughts.
